Adrian Fenty: Demand Disruption

With Adrian Fenty, Venture Capitalist & Former Mayor, Washington D.C.

What does a day in the life of a big city’s mayor look like? We asked our guest, Adrian Fenty. From 2007 to 2011, Adrian managed one of the most complicated and powerful cities in the world: Washington D.C. As mayor, he focused on education reform and disrupting the status quo. Now, as a venture capitalist, he loves to see disruption and innovation all around him every day.

In this episode, I asked him: what do the private and public sectors have in common? And how are they different? I was surprised by some of the answers, and I think you will be too.
